Are they going to get rid of Delonte West? BTW what has Delonte been doing that's getting him in so much trouble?

Not surprising.



Amazing how well these guys play when in a contract year, playing for their careers. And by amazing, I mean embarrassing.

Sounds like this will happen when West gets waived.

Dallas is in major rebuild mode. If this is the case, shouldn't they not sign an aging veteran who won't ever crack the rotation???? Getting rid of Terry and now signing Curry. D Will was extremely lucky not to sign in Dallas. What a pure mess. Cuban has better things to do, like promote dance shows. This is horrible news for Mavs fans.

Not even close.

I really wish Dirk had more to work with, than Curry. This is sad. Maybe not quite as bad as Odom, but comparable. This guy will sit at the end of the bench and never dress for a game. But I'd much rather he sits dressed in a suit, instead of suiting up and pretending to play like Odom.
It will always be shrouded in mystery what happened to West in Dallas. Did he sustain an injury, and never fully recover, and be frustrated in the process?
I agree this is a perfect time to cut a player, rather than let drama unfold in the season, ala Chad Ochocinco in Miami -- that was perfect timing
Professional sports teams don't need unnecessary press that is negative.

I doubt he ever turns into something. The last time I saw him play he was in NY against the Mavs and I couldn't even see the half the court when he walked onto it. It's sad when you get called for 3 secs and you have both feet outside the lane.....

But he is basically a cheap insurance center to soak up a few minutes while Dirk and/or Kaman is out.
